Legally Disabled?: The Career Experiences of Disabled People in the Legal Profession released earlier this year identified that the most requested, and refused, reasonable adjustment for disabled lawyers was remote or home working.
The pandemic necessitated everyone working in this way and this has allowed new opportunities for disabled people, and the profession, to create and contribute to more inclusive working environments.
The Law Society Lawyers with Disabilities Division have commissioned the same researchers, the Legally Disabled team, to carry out further research to capture people’s experiences.
Join them on Monday 2 November for the virtual launch of; ‘The impact of COVID-19 on the employment and training of disabled lawyers in England and Wales: opportunities for job-redesign and best practice’.
They will be discussing the findings, how to improve disability inclusion and taking stock of lessons learnt during COVID-19.
Book your place
This launch will be followed by a series of roundtables to explore in more detail some of the findings.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend either of the following:
- Tuesday 17 November (12.30 – 14.00)
- Thursday 26 November (12.30 – 14.00)
